The collaborative process is a modern alternative to trials in resolving disputes within a pending divorce. It differs from mediation, in that both parties enter into a written agreement to exhaust all efforts to settle their disputes in a board room, before resorting to a court room. With the assistance of a collaborative team that you and your spouse select, issues are resolved in an open forum that is sometimes emotionally charged, but most of the time leads to a better outcome, customized to your family's unique needs, and with a savings in time and money.
Take Control Of Your Life After Your Divorce
During the collaborative divorce process, you and your spouse must make an effort to identify areas of agreement and work hard toward resolution. The process puts you in control of decision-making related to you and your children. Rather than being forced to follow a judge's order dictating how you will conduct your future affairs, the collaborative process is designed to give you and your spouse the ability to analyze and identify your family's unique needs, and draft a settlement that is the best fit possible as you reorganize your family structure.
Retaining a collaborative lawyer to finalize your divorce is the first step. We will help to provide you a legal team, which might include therapists, a parenting coordinator, or a financial neutral to assist with property division and support issues. All of these skilled experts remain at your side throughout the entire process.
Whether a couple has just started the divorce process or has been in litigation for a significant amount of time, we want the couple to know that collaboration is still possible to resolve all issues.
